(Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon)
“what's best about the game [Special Enquiry Detail: Engaged to Kill] is its team of co-heroes, Lamonte and Turino. Both of them offer amusing observational comments when investigating crime scenes, and the banter between the two is often a hoot. In fact, the story as a whole (thanks to writer/designer Steve Ince) is pretty entertaining--certainly better than many a prime-time crime drama.”
- Neilie Johnson, Examiner.com
"Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle is a beautiful looking game with an adventurous story about growing up and dealing with grief"
- Astrid Beulink, Adventure Gamers
